After very careful consideration, Amanda and myself have decided that it’s time to stand down from the Ministox committee. We have been struggling with the time it takes to run the Club, and with Matt racing in another formula the time we spend with the minis at meetings has also been limited.
Whilst we have thoroughly enjoyed our time with the Minis, the recent AGM and unrest brought it to a head and it was very clear from the people there that they wanted change, and were unhappy with the committee as it was and thus my leadership. Therefore, we believe that the time is right to let someone else take the lead and run the Club.
We don’t wish to leave the club in an unstable position and as of today have still been busy doing what we normally do. Should the new BoC wish, Amanda will continue as Licencing Officer for this year, as she has already started. We are also happy to advise the new BoC should they require it for an interim period during the change.
Paul Gerrard has also stated that he will still remain involved in the Club in an advisory manner and ensuring adherence of rules, disciplinary procedures, ORCi and insurance compliance and to maintain consistency, as he has invested a lot of time into the Club and has a passion for its future survival.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank my fellow BoC members and their partners for their support during my time on the BoC, whilst our decisions may not have suited some, I can assure you that they were all made with what we believed to be in the best interests of the Club.
Both Amanda and myself wish the Club well and trust that the new BoC will continue to run it in such a manner that its future is maintained.
See you around the raceways.
